      Alice, it is so wonderful for you to stop by and leave such a lovely post about my grandmother. She was indeed a lot of fun and very much missed through the years. THANK YOU!

    What a wonderful story. Its a reminder as to how the ancestors coped with health issues. I just lost my dear cousin a known “Naturalist” to breast cancer this year, who never went to a doctor and used home/herbal remedies.

    I suppose in the last 3 to 4 years of her life she too had a lump and was determine that she would use the home remedies and would not visit a doctor.

    My dear cousin died at the age of 88 peacefully in her own bed. Everyone body make-up is very different. Let us take a moment and get tested because early detection is the best protection.thank you for sharing.

      Hi Shelley, THANK YOU so much for stopping by and sharing in this tribute to my grandmother and sharing with me about your cousin who died of breast cancer too; I truly appreciate you! I agree, getting tested and detecting this disease early is the only way we can survive. Again, thank you!

      Thank you so much. No, this feature is about my grandmother. My Wordless Wednesday feature and Breast Cancer Awareness tribute was about my aunt, Ella Louse. Again, thank you!
